Local Council To Become ‘(D) deaf friendly

I was so pleased to see that Antrim and Newtownabbey are to become a ‘D(d)eaf-friendly’ council.😊

The local authority will commit to providing signing on their social media videos.

The council is also likely to:

  • Appoint a “deaf champion”
  • Introduce sign courses for staff
  • Commit to approving deaf awareness (working with neighbouring councils and deaf organisations).

Let’s hope more councils follow suit.👍
